Club de Fromage on Ice!

Critics' choice

Cheesy pop music and ice rinks have gone gloved-hand-in-gloved-hand since whenever you were in secondary school. Those one hit wonders you knew all the words to! The lurking at the opposite end of the rink to whichever dreamy teen you had a crush on! The post-session jitters from too many blue raspberry Slush Puppies! The ice rink disco is a British coming-of-age rite of passage, and we're delighted that Club de Fromage are allowing us grown-ups to revisit it. The pop music will be present and correct – everything from Abba to Taylor Swift – and your terror of falling over will be reduced by the presence of a licensed bar. Fancy dress is welcome but not obligatory and there'll be games and prize giveaways while you're on the ice. Bringing your own skates will save you £1.40, but in all honesty we don't deem that to be in the spirit of it. Booking recommended.
